    The Fuel of Missions: God’s Passion for His Glory
    Ezekiel 36: 16-32
     
    For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14)
     
    A) Two Vital Truths:
    1) God saves and redeems His people for His sake, because He loves His glory.
    2) God glorifies Himself among the nations by decisively coming to save his people through cleansing them from their sins and filling them with His Spririt.
     
    B) Two Essential Applications
    1) Be humbly clear about your purpose in life.
    2) Be unashamedly convinced about the message we preach.
